Llanwrtyd Wells is a fun place and an event tourist town. We are home to the World Bog Snorkelling Championship and the iconic Man v Horse race. We also host many other wacky events such as the World Alternative games, mountain bike chariot racing and the Welsh Open stone skimming. There are also many long-standing walking events; the famous cycling Real Ale Wobble; also rally cars compete in the Epynt hills just above Llanwrtyd.


Llanwrtyd is only 13 miles from the Royal Welsh Showground at Builth Wells where the Royal Welsh agricultural show takes place every July. If you want to know more about local events visit
